Slope Stability in an Embankment Dam

Application ID: 54461


A slope stability analysis is performed and the Factor of Safety of the dam embankment is calculated by using the Shear Strength Reduction Technique. The pore pressure in the soil is computed based on Darcy’s law, and the Mohr-Coulomb constitutive model is used to describe the elastoplastic behavior of the soil.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
